Episode #117 // Maker Business Side-Hustle with Sami Jo Jensen

"With a 9-to-5 and a side-hustle, a lot of it comes down to budgeting your time and money."

We’re talking about the importance of paying yourself from your business (even if you have another source of income), pricing your products, sourcing materials, and some of the challenges of putting yourself out there as a maker.
